It's official! Cardinia Council has confirmed that The Emerald Hall is to be demolished to make way for the long awaited Hills Hub Development Project. After a lengthy community consultation process the decision has been made to demolish the existing building to allow for maximum use of the land space. Now that this has been confirmed, 3MDR must find new premises whether they be of a temporary nature while the new building is constructed or a permanent location to house 3MDR for many years to come. Either way, 3MDR will need to be relocated at the end of 2017.
Members of 3MDR have been actively engaged with Cardinia Council regarding the design of the new Hills Hub and endeavoring to secure guarantees from Council that 3MDR will be adequately, and affordably, accommodated in the new facility to operate as a fully independent community radio station.
A working group has been established to not only liaise with Cardinia Council regarding 3MDR's requirements but to also investigate all options whether they be located in Cardinia or in neighbouring towns within 3MDR's licence area.
